4-Algena (la.} Upptr 5«t Moln«» Thursday, detob«r 13, 1955 2 Tie For Week's Recipe Prize Quick Breads Is Subject For Coming Week When the black cats prowl and the 1 witches ride • their broomsticks, it's Halloween and time for a party. No matter how much out-of-this world the guests may seem during the fun and games, they are sure to be ordinary mortals again when it's time for refreshments and this week's Upper Dos Moines - Alpona Merchants recipe contest has just the food to feed the spooks and hobgoblins. There were lots of good recipes. In fact, there were enough to give the judges such a bad time we had to pick two winners again this week. They are Mrs Albert Schwarzenbach for her Halloween Pumpkin Chiffon Pie and Mrs Floyd Duncan for her Witch's Brew. Both these ladies come from Fenton—a town the judges are very fond of for we get so many fine recipes from up there. rMs Schwarzenbach included another good recipe for Halloween Cake, a spice variety which uses a can of tomato soup as one of the ingredients. Mrs Duncan who was a winner in a previous contest, also included recipes foi Taffy Apple Jack-O-Lanterns and for Never Sticky Popcorn Balls. Both would be appropriate for a Halloween Party. Edna Teeter o'f Algona sent two of her good recipes. They were for Goblin Frosties, a concoction made of hollowed out oranges, filled with ice cream and made int pumpkin faces with hats by the use of licorice drops and whole cloves, and for Orange Yam Puffs, a luncheon or dinner dish while good for Halloween could be used any time. Mrs Margaret Fraser of Cylinder sent an ice-cream recipe'that is unusual. It's for Pumpkin Ice Cream and it sounds delicious. Gladys Barker of Cedar Rapids sent a recipe for an old favorite —Custard Pumpkin Pie which reminds us that Pumpkin Pie is America's favorite Fall dessert. Other recipes from Mrs BarKei were for Peanut Crisps, Candied Apples, Deviled Burgers, Hot Cranberry Cider, Molded Melon Cooler and Melon Cups. All of these were super, but, the judges thought our winners were a little closer to the Halloween theme. Mrs Joe Kenne of Irvington sent a Banana Cake recipe. Ii has a Crumb Nut topping made of crushed corn flakes, sugar, butter and walnuts and it's baked on right with the cake. Her other recipe is for Cranberry Desserr— a long-time favorite of Grace's. If you would like to know how to make Mrs Schwarzenbach's pie or Mrs Duncan's Witch's Brew, turn to our special contest page for the recipes. Also included there are the messages from the Algona Merchants sponsoring these contests. They have ten more dallai^ for prize money next week. Next week's contest should be a big one again. The category, Quick Breads, is lots more definite than Halloween Party Foods so it should be very 'interesting. Mail or bring your entries to the Algona Upper Dos Moines and be sure and get them there by four o'clock on Monday so that the judges can get to work on them —GRACE. 5 3 New Arrivals Past Week For Titonka Homes TiJonka — Mr and Mrs Ubben an- the pjjri-nts of a b;jby daugh- t'-r b<,m a the Buffalo Center ho.-:piK,l.
